Our Heritage Reserve Chardonnay is made from the finest barrels of the vintage, chosen for their complexity, firm structure and acidity, and ability to age. In 2015 we selected our favorite barrels of Wildcat Mountain Vineyard, a clone 76 chardonnay which provides the ripe, bright fruit core of this wine. To this we blended select barrels of the Schug Estate, opting for Clone C and a Wente Selection., which contributes vibrant floral aromas. All of this was balanced by the workhorse Clone 4 that Ricci provides. The resulting wine shows intense fruit aromas of ripe pear and orange liqueur, complemented by toasty oak. Complex pear, apple and citrus flavors give way to a full-bodied texture and a long finish. Try with shellfish, cream soups, chicken, veal, or rich pasta dishes. It will gain complexity with additional cellaring for 2 to 5 years from release.
